1001 one night stands.


     “Chiefs and sons of chiefs may speak the words, but the Evil One’s tongue would surely turn to fire. I will begin, and you shall finish: Ee’d plebnista norkohn forkohn perfectunun…”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-06-09) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

Or, thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost, you can get it this other way, which you might like better because it offers an instant-play option and isn’t surrounded by confusing flashing ads.

Two words: Connie Francis, singing in Italian, for most of the musical breaks. Those songs were on 45s in the jukebox in my grandparents’ Italian restaurant when I was little, and they still play inside my head and inform my life. Torero, for example: “I never keel him –only if he gets in my way. Torero, torero, olé!”

Besides all that, though, here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but otherwise worthwhile items that I set aside for you while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Take note of these happy young people in love. It’s like the Jews say: The whole /world/ isn’t crazy.

Ancient Japanese myths in the style of modern fashion illustrations.

“Maybe ve dun’t alvays be knowink who ve are.” Oedipus, a short animated film by Paul Driessen.

It’s really a phantom traffic snake eating oncoming cars at one end and pooping them out the other.

Elton John and Bernie Taupin asked people to make music videos for their early popular songs. Here’s a playlist of what came up. I only watched the first one, but if they’re all /that/ good, then wow. (It’s Tiny Dancer, in case the order changes.)

How to argue with your partner.

How to make an ellipse.

How to play with four-dimensional toys.

It’s big and it’s hot, I’ll give it that.

The year 2000. The distant future.

The full set.

How to turn a bolt with a robot hand made of four coordinated flexible penises, in case you’re ever in that situation and need to know.

How to win approval.

Can you even imagine /anyone/ in the entire Trump administration hellscape/painbox/shitshow genuinely enjoying the company of children?

The story of the inner Tantric Barney.

Speaking of Barney, I recommend the film /Death To Smoochy/.

And the Paul Theroux book /Milroy the Magician/.

And from there, the film /The Prestige/, featuring David Bowie as Nikola Tesla.

How not to rant.

Spongebob sings War Pigs.

Inside the fake news media.

North, forward and then backward.

An ad made of active water for something called Active Water.

Peanut puree and fruit confiture topped with pane bianco.

Robotic 6-axis 3D printing. Like a spider.

Infinite zooms into fruit, doughnuts, butter, etc.

Fairey-Ford tesselation and circle packing.

Octopus erotica, and also frogs, snails, a giant mushroom-like dick, and a fish. But mostly octopockles, like in Pogo, where Howland Owl cries out, “HALP! OCTOPOCKLES DONE GOT ME!” (It’s a cute baby octopus sitting on his head.)

There’s a fad now, it turns out, for using video game engines to simulate simple battles. 20 T-rexes against 1000 chickens, that sort of thing. Here’s 10,000 U.S. soldiers (with unlimited ammunition) against 50,000 Roman soldiers armed with only swords.


Roy Zimmerman. A marriage like they had in the bible.

A little perspective. “This is 80646160110.”

“Fucker, you better /sit down and be good, now./”

Overtone polyphonic singing.

Apparently it’s a thing. Here’s another expert doing it.

The 1933 Besler steam-powered biplane. It was said to be so quiet you could hear the pilot muttering alphabetical order to himself as he flew low above the esplanade and dropped mail into your basket.

And a time-lapse Porche engine teardown and rebuild, featuring Mr. Gray, Mr. Plaid, and Mr. Blue-Arms.
